How to watch WWDC 2020

The event kicks off at 10 a.m. PT on June 22 with the main keynote presentation. There are lots of ways to tune in. You can stream the show at, on YouTube, by using the Apple Developer app or website, and on the Apple TV app. A live video of the presentation will be embedded in this article as soon as it is available, so make sure to check back regularly.

After the keynote, at 2 p.m. PT, Apple will start its Platforms State of the Union address, which takes a deeper look at how MacOS, iOS, iPadOS, watchOS, and tvOS have developed over the last year. This will be available to stream on the Apple Developer app and website.

Throughout the week, Apple will host more than 100 engineering sessions. Each of these will go in-depth on a topic, showing developers how to use all the latest and upcoming features in Apple’s operating systems to build or improve their apps. Videos will be posted at 10 a.m. PT each day during the week and will be available on the Apple Developer app and website.

Developers will also be able to attend virtual one-on-one sessions with Apple engineers. These will be by appointment only and are particularly useful for developers who have a certain question or problem in mind.

Finally, a new addition this year are Apple Developer Forums. More than 1,000 Apple engineers will be in attendance to answer questions posted by the community. Anyone can view the questions and answers, but only Apple Developer Program members can ask new questions.

What to expect at WWDC 2020

The Mac is expected to have a large presence at WWDC, with the long-rumored switch to ARM processors potentially in the cards. Elsewhere, Apple may preview new devices, including a redesigned iMac, Tile-like Bluetooth trackers called AirTags, and over-ear headphones called either StudioPods or AirPods Studio.

Apple uses WWDC to preview upcoming versions of its operating systems, and this year will be no different. You can also expect to see all the new features in iOS 14, iPadOS14, macOS 10.16, watchOS 7, and tvOS 14.

We will have all the details on everything Apple announces as it happens, so check back throughout the event for more info.

Hype has been growing for Apple’s upcoming M3 chips, which are expected to splash down in a slate of Macs and iPads later this year. Yet one leaker has come along to spoil the party and has claimed that we won’t see anything of the sort until 2024.

That idea comes from Twitter leaker Revegnus, who tweeted that there would be “No M3 Mac or iPad for this year.” That will be disappointing news to anyone looking forward to laying their hands on the latest and greatest Apple silicon chips in the coming months.

Apple is planning a packed line-up for its Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) on June 5, which could become “one of the most critical events in the company’s history.” Aside from the company’s upcoming Reality Pro headset, there will be major updates to Apple’s software systems, including the biggest watchOS revamp since the Apple Watch launched in 2015.

That’s according to a new report from Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, who has a history of accurate predictions and leaks surrounding Apple products. It suggests that WWDC will be a chance for Apple to set out its future ambitions for a “post-iPhone era.”

Person using iPhone and MacBook.

Apple’s ecosystem attracts plenty of praise for how all the company’s devices work seamlessly together -- and rightly so.
